|Dmitri Shostakovich|| |
Violin Sonata, Op. 134
|Sergei Sergeievitch Prokofiev|| |
Violin Sonata No. 1 in F minor, Op. 80
Itamar Golan (Piano), Igor Malinovsky (Violin)
A raw CD, a sound with rough edges, two internationally successful musicians with profile. In their new GENUIN CD, Igor Malinovsky and Itamar Golan present a disc that guarantees musical tension of the highest degree. Two of the wildest violin sonatas of the twentieth century confront each other, namely Prokofiev’s First Violin Sonata in F minor and the Sonata by Shostakovich. The violin sound by Malinovsky, founder of the Dresden Residenz concerts, is multifaceted and spotless, the piano performance by Golan no less differentiated and powerful. A truly profound hour!
